Home automation provider Control4 has finally seen fit to open up its systems to Android users, releasing a version of its MyHome software for phones and tablets. Already available on iOS and PCs, it lets homeowners with Control4 setups manage their video, music, lighting and more on their own devices with taps and gestures. The apps themselves are free, but naturally one will need a MyHome license to use them, which runs $499 for multiple devices at one location or $199 for a single device. Of course, if you’ve had one of these installed scraping together the cash probably won’t be too difficult, while you’re checking the couch for loose change we’ll sit back and wonder whatever happened to that Android@Home project we (haven’t) heard so much about.
